Eric Paslay has announced that he will release a new EP on Friday, July 3rd, HEARTBEAT HIGHER. The EP will include the previously released title-track as well as three additional songs. Among them, “On This Side of Heaven,” written by Eric, Jordan Reynolds and Jordan Minton, which drops for fans today ahead of the EP (5/6).
“The outpouring of love, support and excitement with ‘Heartbeat Higher’ was so amazing that I’m super pumped to drop the EP!” said Eric. “I think I’ve got the fans covered with four songs in every direction. I’ve got one for my ‘Barefoot’ crew, my ‘She Don’t Love You’ fans and something new for me… a cover!”
The video for HEARTBEAT HIGHER’s title track (see below), written by Eric, Zach Crowell and Sarah Buxton, and also featuring Sarah, was released earlier this month and the video exclusively premiered on People.com. The video was directed by Timothy Hiele and was filmed during the recording process and in Stockholm, Sweden during Eric’s headlining “Nice Guy Tour” late last year, which also stopped in the UK, Ireland, the Netherlands, Norway and Germany, as well as main stage festival dates across Australia.
